First Meeting in the Shadow Manor - Part 1

(hello!)
14:47:42
(Hello!)
14:47:57
(would you like to title the room, or do that later?)
14:48:06
(Don't have any good idea right now, but we'll see later if it strikes ^^)
14:48:46
*Nagusa slowly walked down the streets of Erocity, holding a small parchment in her hands*
14:49:51
Alley of fog... Alley of grime... Alley of pomp... Ah, here it is... Alley of Mists...
14:50:31
*she mumbles to herself as she enters the secluded alley, still holding the piece of paper*
14:50:59
*she is an odd sight in the alley, dressed in formal traditional clothing, complete with a hair ornament and a sash tied around her waist ending with a large bow behind her back. Fortunately she drew no stares in the deserted and secluded alley*
14:52:23
*As you walk along the way, you can notice that indeed, the place is quite isolated. No home on the sides, but only one large wrought iron gate at the end of the alley.*
14:54:57
*Nagusa slowly walks up the the large iron gate and stands in front of it, wondering if it would be polite to knock, then thinking that the sound certainly would not travel all the way to the mansion that can be seen within*
14:55:50
*Just as you arrive in front of the gate, you see some text glowing and you can read this message "Benevolent thoughts come in and be welcome. The malicious ones be warned and turn around".*
14:57:06
*An instant later, the gate opens in the middle, and you see the garden in front of you, crossed by a little white marble alley leading to the little red and black house*
14:58:38
*Nagusa is slightly surprised by the gate opening by itself. She touches it briefly, trying to sense if there is magic at work, but does not sense a strong presence*
14:59:30
👋
15:01:06
*although concerned that it would be rude to enter without an explicit invitation, she figured that the letter she held in her hands and the glowing words in front of her were sufficient invitation, and took slow and careful steps into the garden, being very careful not to step on any of the plants as she made her way towards the building*
15:01:10
Hello Roma
15:01:13
(Hey Roma!)
15:01:39
(I will not disturb you two. I will enjoy this marvellous game from the shadows 😘)
15:01:40
you'll never be disturbing dear roma lol
15:02:19
(No worries, even if I may use this chat later in the game ;) )
15:02:26
o.o
15:02:39
(I know, but when two artists work, you must respect it. So I will stay silent unlesa you call me)
15:03:03
(😊)
15:03:23
*You aproach the house, you hear the gate closing herself behing you, as you walks along a marble pedestal where a ancient golden lamp is put in exhibition. In the back garden behind the house you hear a pretty jazzy saxophone solo, but nothing else seems to perturbate the tranquility of the place.*
15:06:37
*Nagusa marvels a little at the the display of wealth surrounding her, wondering if she will get the opportunity to inspect some of the items that have piqued her curiousity. She momentarily halts in her footsteps, lost in the ambience of the place, thinking about where she should head towards next*
15:09:24
*You arrive in front of the house door, a simple wodden name plate on top of it displays the name of the house "Shadow Manor". On the door only a claw-shaped door knocker seems to wait for you.*
15:10:17
*Nagusa checks her parchment once more. She was at the right place. But how best to announce her presence without being disruptive? Thinking that using the knocker loudly would cause far too much noise, she instead elects to tap softly on the unyielding door with her knuckles*
15:12:38
*You suddenly hear a soft pop behing you*
15:14:18
"Nobody will hear you like this honey!"
15:14:56
*she turns around at the disturbance, worried if she had stepped on something by mistake*
15:15:19
*She floats in the air, a mischievious smile on her face*
15:16:07
"Looking for Aëlya I bet?"
15:16:23
*In front of you, you see a cat-girl, with purple and black fur and hair, she looks at you*
15:17:31
*Nagusa starts at the presence behind her, not expecting a being there*
15:18:13
*she bows to Kyrael in greeting* My apologies, my lady. You are right, I am looking for Aelya. May I have the honour of knowing your name?
15:19:17
"My lady??!!" *She chuckles* "You might be the only lady here... but I'm Kyraël, nice to meet you!"
15:20:40
(wrong character XD)
15:21:25
(Damn!! ^^)
15:21:47
*She looks at you with a lewd eye, and suddenly rushes in the air toward the door, grabbing the knocker and smiching it, screaming*
15:22:32
"Aëlyaaaaa!!! People for youuuuu!!!"
15:22:50
*Nagusa starts to panic and reaches out to stop the girl* Awawa~ no, no, don't do that, you're going to break something!
15:23:53
*Bursting in a laugh, she winks at you and disappears in a "pop"*
15:24:18
*Nagusa rubs her forehead and shakes it lightly. She has now no choice but to wait for the lady of the mansion to show up*
15:26:00
*A few seconds later, the door opens, and you see Aëlya in the door frame, wearing a simple ong garnet-colored slit dress, made in a diaphanous fabric. She bows her head at you with a smile.*
15:27:32
"Hello dear, welcome at my humble house."
15:28:08
*Nagusa hurriedly returns the greeting with a deep bow, and starts to stutter an apology for making such a loud disturbance*
15:28:32
Ah, greetings, Lady Aelya. My apologies, I did not intend to cause such a ruckus... There was a magical being here earlier, and she...
15:29:12
*She softly giggles indulgently*
15:30:03
"You don't have to worry about that Nagusa, Kyraël is... well Kyraël. That's in her nature to make jokes and try to make people feel unconfortable.
15:31:14
oh, I see...
15:31:40
Then allow me to express my gratitude for the invitation, and my joy at seeing you in person
15:32:01
I'm really glad you accepted to come. You were right in your letter, I' don't invite many people in here. I hope you didn't have too much trouble to come."
15:33:30
Well, it certainly was a little out of the way of the main city areas. Rather, I think it might be difficult for you to travel out to the city centre when you wish to do so, wouldn't it?
15:34:46
"Oh no, don't worry I can travel pretty fast." *She winks*
15:35:55
Ah, my apologies for assuming things, then
15:36:18
You have to stop apologizing for everything Nagusa, and as long as you stay here."
15:37:23
"I'm no noble lady, so please relax yourself"
15:38:21
ah, sorry about that... oops *she catches herself and smiles sheepishly*
15:38:22
it.. may take me some time to get used to it *she smiles pleasantly, hiding a giggle*
15:38:46
*She lets out a gentle laugh* "It's okay dear. Just know one thing before we enter, there is only two rules here, first don't still anything, but that's basic courtesy, and second stay yourself, free. Decorum is, I would say, relative and optional here."
15:41:34
*She puts herself saide and waves you to come in*
15:41:55
"Please"
15:42:07
oh, no. decorum should be observed, but I will try to be myself as much as possible in your presence. And I am surprised that you are no noble, for very few non-nobles I know would be able to afford such a wonderful place and beautiful garden
15:43:09
*she steps inside the doors and into the main hall, although doesn't go much further in, waiting for you to lead the way rather than wander and accidentally intrude on private areas*
15:44:03
"I could say it was partially... a gift"
15:44:51
"But no I'm not noble, even if technically, sort of from my parents. But I'm not form this world and I have just a bit of gold in a corner"
15:46:26
ohh, I see. I will be most interested to hear of your otherworldly stories some time then!
15:47:12
*She wink, leading you though a long hallway leading to many doors, walls covered with paintings and tapestries of beings form other worlds. The cenhdeliers on the ceiling reflected the light with red and purple colors**
15:49:28
"And I'll gladly tell you some"
15:50:01
*she silently follows behind you, swivelling her head left and right, marvelling at the history this place no doubt contains, and what her host will have to share*
15:50:27
"Behind those doors, you'll find the common rooms" *She walks you by the foot of a wide white marble staircase and started going up.*
15:52:46
"Sorry I have no elevator"
15:52:58
That's alright, I am capable of walking a few steps *she giggles a little and follows you up the steps, walking lightly so her footsteps don't echo*
15:54:06
"We spend most of our time in the common area, but each one of us have his appartment on a floor." *As you listen to her, suddenly you realize something that bothered you. You remember the small two floor house and it hits you; the interior was really bigger that the exterior. Just the size of the stairs didn't match. And as you put a hand on the handrail, you feel that maybe everything is full of magic in here*
15:58:28
*She certainly has felt the magical auras within the house, but is rather unfazed by it, being a magical creature herself. Her adventures and experiences in the forest have also tempered her surprise somewhat when encountering magics. Since her host has not commented on the issue, she pretends to remain oblivious to it as well, so long it brings her no harm*
16:01:37
that is very generous of you, La- Aelya. *she quickly corrects herself*
16:02:10
My apprentice and I share the same small building, only having separate rooms out of necessity
16:03:05
*You rich the first floor, only one silver door with a symbol of an eye surrounded by seven stars engraved. But she keeps moving up.**
16:04:52
"Well, the advantge of this house I was gifted with, is that she can change according to my will and can be transported away with me. So to be able to welcome all the members of my familly, it's pretty usefull to say the least"
16:06:34
oh, that is a very nice gift. You are blessed, Aelya. and it is good of you to share that blessing with others. *she gives you a gentle compliment*
16:07:25
*Second floor, still moving up* "A tremedous gift made by an old friend as a goodbye. And I will do anything for my closest friends even sacrifice myself. So a place in the manor is nothing."
16:09:21
Loyalty like that cannot be bought. Your friends are indeed blessed to have you. *she smiles as she keeps up with your pace on the steps*
16:11:02
*Third floor, going up, only the doors changing* "Indeed you're perfectly right. So you don't live at the Moon Shrine?"
16:12:02
I do. what makes you suggest otherwise?
16:12:30
*she frowns, puzzled at the sudden question*
16:12:39
"Oooh, you just mentionned a small building and so I presumed you were not talking about the Shrine."
16:13:32
*She looks surprised by your reaction*
16:14:05
Oh, the Moon shrine is a small and humble complex. You must be thinking of the Sun Shrine, which is far more grandiose and appealing.
16:15:06
*Fouth floor, up...* "Oh maybe. That's were Sunny lives right?" *She makes a pause* "I might sound a bit indiscreet."
16:18:03
Yes, you are right. Indiscreet?
16:18:25
"Sorry, I..." *She stops, smiling at you* "Huh, Old habits coming back I guess. As I said in my letter I'm a "bit" suspicious and sometimes I forgot that not everyone is." *She giggles*
16:21:18
No, it's alright. What did you want to know?
16:21:37
(Does your rp in public chat with Roma and Akane is canon btw?)
16:22:48
(which one?)
16:23:02
(end of the shrine part 3?)
16:23:20
(One of the first story with kiuko. I think part 3 yes)
16:23:41
(absolutely canon)
16:23:46
(Okay)
16:23:53
*Fifth floor...* "Well... when I first heard of the Sun Shrine, I thought it was..." *She frowns* "Akane I think that would have take care of it."
16:25:42
Ah... Akane...
16:26:01
She was a short lived presence at the Shrine, although she was a great help in its reconstruction
16:26:40
(Toilets quickly ^^)
16:26:45
*she smiles a little sadly*
16:26:53
Unfortunately, she had to take her leave. Something about her brother coming to the area and not wanting to interfere with his business. I can only hope she is well, wherever she may be.
16:27:29
(Back)
16:27:52
"Oh... well, I never met her but I would have love to. Anyway, we are done" * You both arive on the top six floor, facing an ebony door adorned with another multicolored metallic disk, above a carved dragon's skull with amethyst eyes, bathing in scarlet flame*
16:30:59
*She opens the door and waves you inside*
16:31:23
"Welcome to my apartments, feel like home please"
16:31:46
*she stares at the intricate symbols on the door, trying but failing to make out the significance, but ultimately gives up and enters the room*
16:31:57
Thank you.
16:32:12
(Almost looks like there is a story in both chats)
16:32:50
(*Nods* Heyo)
16:33:17
(it'll look better as a log i think lol)
16:33:26
(In a Word file ^^)
16:34:01
*They entered a large living room opening on two doors, giving a feeling of well-being, Several large armchairs and sofas welcomed you, arranged around sculpted coffee tables. Along the walls, on various drawers and cupboards, rested candlesticks of gold and silver. An all-ruby chandelier diffused a warm dancing light on the paintings and tapestries on the walls. Against the back wall, was exposed a collection of medieval weapons of all kinds. In the center, in an engraved stone fireplace, a scarlet magical fire burned, above which hung a huge red dragon skull.*
16:36:25
(I won't bother you, just wanted to say hi though)
16:36:27
(Hi!)
16:36:39
(Or... we can create a scene in public chat *winks*)
16:37:14
*gives abby a warm hug* 🥰
16:37:17
"Please Nagusa, have a sit. What would you like to drink or eat? Salty, sweet?"
16:37:41
(I wanted to keep out from your rp, I don't want to chenge the flow)
16:38:05
(But thank you for the hug)
16:38:16
(No problem ;) )
16:38:28
Oh, thank you. *she takes a seat on the sofa, smoothing out the wrinkles on her outfit as she does so*
16:39:11
*she thinks for a bit*
16:39:24
No preference, really. Food is always a delight to share no matter the flavour, and I am sure whatever you have to offer will be delicious whether it is salty or sweet
16:40:16
(It is, because I don't feel like rolelaying, I'd ruin the scene. Just consider I'm spectating you)
16:41:58
*cuddles* take care, dear abby. And just enjoy with us
16:42:50
*She reaches for a tea pot and two tin boxes and from one puts some cookies on a silver plate, and takes some green power form the second. She drops it in the teapot*
16:43:03
(Oh sweetie, being your beautiful self doesn't ruin anything *smiles*)
16:43:50
"Some tea I bringed back from a place coalled Japan, on the planet Earth. I figured that you love tea, am I wrong?"
16:44:04
(I hope you enjoy btw ^^)
16:44:42
Ahh, a tea connoisseur. Excellent. *She smiles with pride*
16:44:55
*She pours some tea on a cup and put both on the table in front of you.*
16:45:26
Yes, you are right. Tea leaves from this land is crushed into powder and mixed directly into the water, giving it a deeper flavour and colour
16:45:57
*she picks up the cup and breathes in deeply, a smile on her face*
16:46:28
"I really enjoy it indeed" *She approaches the mantle of the fire place and grabs some tobacco she fills her pipe with*
16:47:10
*She then pour herslef a glas of whiskey and sit on the armchair in front of you, and lights it with a small scarlet flamme from her fingertip. Raising her glass she looks at you in the eyes**
16:48:53
"In the honor of what I hope will be a new friendship"
16:49:19
*she raises her cup with both hands* to your honour
16:50:11
*she then sips slowly at the tea, relishing the freshness and fragrance of it*
16:50:50
*She take a sip of whisey and puts her glass on the table, puffing on the pipe*
16:51:09
"Well I hope you enjoy."
16:51:34
(I'll do for sure. I have to go now, but I'll eventually read the log)
16:52:00
(See you around then :) )
16:52:21
Oh, it is indeed enjoyable... I am grateful for the wonderful hospitality
16:52:38
(Have fun and bye~)
16:52:55
Surely you did not invite me just to sit and have tea?
16:53:02
"Oh I'm pretty sure I'm nothing in comparison to you on this field." *She winks*
16:53:23
*nagusa blushes slightly at your implication*
16:53:51
"Your right indeed, but first do you have any question? I saw you stare at the door before"
16:54:14
Hmm... I did notice an intricate pattern on each door we passed. I assume that the design on each door must hold great meaning for each occupant
16:55:11
I assume I will know more when i get to meet and know them better
16:55:24
"Well the better way to understand them is indeed to discuss. But to make it simple, yes each door represent the one who lives behind. For example the eye on the first floor door is the symbol of the goddess Aëlynn serves. And the colored circle on my door is the symbol of a god a believe in Asgorath."
16:59:30
"Others have just a door painted in their favorite colours."
17:00:10
Ohh, that is fascinating *nagusa nods*
17:00:42
(*Of a god I believe in, Asgorath)
17:00:50
I have myself placed a small motif near the entrance of my shrine, a gift from a favoured guest some time ago
17:01:35
*She looks curious* "Do you kitsune, believe in gods?"
17:02:06
Hmm. Not one god, no
17:02:41
The spirits are always around us, and should be accorded proper reverence. But they are no different from the rest of us, subject to whims and fancies
17:03:22
They are not the omnipotent, all encompassing divine being that many think them to be
17:03:49
*She puffs deeply, and releases a large cloud of smoke that disappear in the fireplace.*
17:04:01
"I see, I see. Well both exist and both should be respected when they are on the good side."
17:04:58
"By the way I think..."
17:05:18
*She seems to concentrate a bit*
17:05:29
Yes?
17:05:34
"Yes, maybe that it was in the same forest as the one you live in that Aëlyrya met the spirit that lives in her"
17:06:24
Oh? That seems interesting.
17:06:53
*Nagusa's ears perk up with interest at the latest piece of news*
17:07:22
Hi ^^
17:07:39
"Yes right?! So many connections in this world, it's amazing. That forest have a link with every occupants of the manor, except Aëlynn and me. Maybe something in here appeals magical creatures"" " *She
17:09:51
*She seems genuinely excited by the idea.*
17:10:04
"And I won't talk about the fact that if you except Maki, everyone in this made family as the same rot in their names..."
17:11:22
(*root)
17:11:43
the same... root...?
17:11:51
*she tilts her head slightly, puzzled*
17:12:00
"aël is a part of each of our names. Is it fate taht bringed us together?
17:13:01
oh... *her eyes widen slightly as the realization dawns*
17:13:47
that is a very interesting coincidence. No wonder you consider each other family...
17:14:00
it certainly merits more investigation... *she muses*
17:14:49
*She looks up at the ceiling, looking dreamy as she puffs*
17:14:54
"Indeed..."
17:15:05
"I might have spent years wandering in the multiverse, I may know that gods exist, I still have so much question about how some things like fate work..."
17:16:38
"We always have lot to discover"
17:17:11
Fate is a strange thing. Sometimes, paths cross once, and are forever entwined together. Yet others meet once, then never meet again
17:17:29
(Hey Emy :) )
17:17:40
Well, our meeting must have been fate too, and if we are to unravel the mysteries, it will take some time, and some investigative efforts. but it's a start
17:18:12
"Much often the second than the first though." *She returned to a more comfortable position in the chair*
17:19:40
"Well sooner you asked me if I invited you just for tea. And you were right"
17:20:20
*The lack of windows start to feel a bit weird for you, and as you she stands up and moves in front of the fireplace, the red light of the flames dances on the fabric of the clothes, leaving you seeing her lines of her body with no need of magination as you notice that nothing was under the dress.*
17:24:46
"I told you that one of us is a kistsune right? Well, it's a bit more complicated and I think that maybe if you want, you can help me about something."
17:26:00
Oh? Yes. You've mentioned her in your letters. Tell me more about how i could help
17:26:39
"It's weird really. She's actually a half-kistune and has no tail. But after some inquiries it seems that she might have a phoenix for a father."
17:28:39
*She takes a break, puffing*
17:28:51
Inquiries...? *Nagusa leans back in thought*
17:29:26
I am not full kitsune myself... And as you can see, i have no tail either, although it intrigues me greatly as to why this family of yours lacks tails as well
17:30:16
"Yes, she wanted me to discover more about her past. I just assume that her missing tail is due to her mixed blood or maybe her young age."
17:31:59
Hmm... It may not be as simple...
17:32:33
Perhaps it will be easier to see and feel in person than idle speculation. Would an audience with the precious fox be possible?
17:34:11
"Maybe. but I don't overthink this as a mixed blood myself, I know how this absence can feel though. But sure, she is at home actually. Even if she doesn't like to talk about it, she will be glad to meet and talk with you." "
17:35:40
That would probably be for the best. Perhaps i will make her comfortable if i shared my own story with her, too
17:36:55
"You should although know that most of all, she was raised by a human after her village have been destroyed by fire and people there killed by bandits. She grew up isolated from the world, and don't know much about it.""
17:37:32
"But I'm sure she'll love to hear you story and tell you hers"
17:38:05
Oh... *Nagusa's face falls a little and her ears droop*
17:38:13
I understand... I know a thing or two about bandits...
17:38:25
"That is the second reason, my pinky says to me that there might be a link between your story, Akane's one and Maëlya's."
17:39:46
Hmm...
17:40:50
"When she came here the first time, she was followed by shady henchmen linked to slavers groups"
17:41:05
"After some inquiries, I figured out that it was the same group that raided your ancient home from who Romantic saved you."
17:43:10
(wow that's going to be a tough one...)
17:43:53
Well, not much point in further idle speculation. Shall we go and meet the lovely lady to know more?
17:44:28
(Really?? :) )
17:44:40
"Sure I'll call her"
17:45:10
(let's do this next session, and we'll sort a few details via dm in between)
17:45:42
*She seems to get sucked in the shadow of an armchair, and reappears a few second later*
17:46:12
"She's coming"
17:46:20
(Okay)
17:46:26
(well, I'll go to bed. Let's pick this up again. When would be a good time? Thursday this time?)
17:46:58
(Fine for me!)
17:47:19
(I'll even be there one hour sooner)
17:47:32
(plot twist: all the slavers who hubted Maelya, Nagusa and Akabe were, in truth, men od Eokantix
17:48:07
(great! See you in dm's and on thursday!)
17:48:11
(Anyway, loved it even if i'm struggling with my brain ^^, hope you too)
17:48:17
*Romantic)
17:48:24
(Have a good night and see ya, I'll turn it public if that's okay for you after finding a title and desc 😘)
17:49:10
You do that and I'll check the box tomorrow morning!)
17:49:25
(Oh damn, you just got your head chopped off your neck... that's too bad... XD)
17:50:00
